What to expect in your first session
In the first session, I will firstly undertake an initial assessment. I will gather some personal information about you, such as sleeping patterns, lifestyle information, medical symptoms or medication, and any treatments involving other healthcare providers. This is important because the information you provide enables me to tailor the sessions to you and your experiences. We will both be sitting in comfortable chairs and the conversation will be more of a discussion than a question-and-answer session. My aim is for you to feel relaxed from the start – even before formal therapy begins!
We will then go through your answers and identify any underlying problems or beliefs that may be contributing to the situation that you would like to change. We will also explore the problem or issue in more depth and answer any questions you may have.We will discuss your requirements and goals for therapy. I will then explain the process(es) and how we are going to proceed.
